ATLANTA: LAST SEASON: 29-53, missed playoffs.
COACH: Lloyd Pierce (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Trae Young (19.1 ppg, 8.1 apg), G Kevin Huerter (9.7 ppg), F De'Andre Hunter (No. 5 overall pick), F John Collins (19.5 ppg, 9.8 rpg), C Damian Jones (5.4 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Dewayne Dedmon, G Kent Bazemore, F Omari Spellman
KEY ADDITIONS: Hunter, Jones, F Cam Reddish, F Jabari Parker, G Evan Turner, G Allen Crabbe, F Chandler Parsons, C Bruno Fernando.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Young and Collins are two of the NBA's top young players, while Huerter shows plenty of promise, so the key to this season will be how well they mesh with two more first-round picks, Hunter and No. 10 choice Reddish. Hunter figures to start right away, while Reddish will get plenty of playing time off the bench. Also keep an eye on Parker, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014 by the Milwaukee Bucks. While he has yet to develop into the star everyone expected, Parker is still just 24 years old and has averaged 15.1 points per game over his five-year career. The Hawks, who are focused on player development, hope they can flush out Parker's game. Finally, the Hawks will send out 42-year-old Vince Carter for his record 22nd ' and final ' season in the NBA. Carter showed last season he's still got game, but he won't get as many minutes in his last hurrah as he serves more of a coach-mentor role to all the young players.
OUTLOOK: The Hawks showed promise in Pierce's first season but this franchise is still in the midst of a major rebuilding job. Atlanta might have an outside shot at slipping into the playoffs, but would probably be better off getting another crack at the draft lottery. General manager Travis Schlenk has been acquiring over-priced players that other teams wanted to get off the books. Parsons ($25.1 million), Turner ($18.6 million) and Crabbe ($18.5 million) are in the final year of their contracts, which means 2020 is the year to really start paying attention to the Hawks.
PHOENIX: LAST SEASON: 19-63, finished 15th in Western Conference.
COACH: Monty Williams (first season with Suns, sixth season overall, 173-221).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ricky Rubio (12.7 ppg), G Devin Booker (26.6), F Kelly Oubre Jr. (15.2), F Dario Saric (10.6), C Deandre Ayton (16.3)
KEY LOSSES: F T.J. Warren, G/F Josh Jackson
KEY ADDITIONS: Rubio, Saric, G/F Cameron Johnson, F Frank Kaminsky III, F Cheick Diallo, G Ty Jerome
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Suns are trying to build a winning team around the core of Ayton and Booker, who are both still young and put up big numbers last season. The 7-foot-1 Ayton averaged a double-double in his rookie season while shooting nearly 59 percent from the field. Booker averaged 26.6 points per game and nearly seven assists. Oubre was a pleasant surprise after joining the team midway through last season, scoring nearly 17 points per game after the trade and playing good defense. Rubio gives the Suns an experienced point guard who should help Ayton, Booker and Oubre get better scoring chances. Rubio's presence also allows Booker to play off the ball and focus on scoring.
OUTLOOK: The Suns should be much better than the 19-win version of a year ago. Rubio's presence along with the input first-year coach Monty Williams should give the starting lineup some discipline and structure. Phoenix's ceiling depends on the development of Ayton and Booker. If the two can develop into All-Star caliber players than there might be something brewing in the desert. The major problem is the Western Conference is still stacked with good teams, so a move into the playoffs feels a little far-fetched this season.
Long-range shootout on tap as Suns host Hawks

The Phoenix Suns will bring a franchise-record stretch of 3-point accuracy into Thursday's home game against Atlanta, a team that has also benefited from the long ball.

The Suns were third in the league in 3-point percentage and eighth in the league in makes after hitting 16 triples in a 123-115 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, extending their streak of making at least 11 3-pointers to eight consecutive games.

Hawks guard Trae Young, meanwhile, tied a career high with eight treys in his second career 40-point game Tuesday. He had 17 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter of the Hawks' 125-121 victory at Denver.

"I'm just trying to do whatever it takes," Young said, "whether it's scoring, whether it's getting everybody involved. Just trying to do whatever it takes to put my team in the best position to win."

The Suns will play the fifth game of a six-game homestand against Atlanta, which is running the gamut of Pacific Division leaders. The Hawks will close out a season-long five-game road trip with upcoming games in Los Angeles against the Lakers and the Clippers.

The Suns do not seek out the 3-point shot, but when it is unimpeded, they are encouraged to let it fly. Seven Suns made multiple threes in a blowout of Brooklyn on Sunday, a franchise first, according to Elias.

"I told our guys to play free," Suns coach Monty Williams said. "I tell our guys if they have worked on a shot, shoot it. The last thing I want is guys thinking about a shot. If you've worked on it and it is an efficient shot for you, take the shot. We want our guys playing with confidence."

Aron Baynes, who has taken over at center during Deandre Ayton's 25-game suspension, has been a revelation from outside. He tied a career high with four 3-pointers against the Lakers and has made a career-high 22 this season after hitting 21 with Boston last season.

"We see what everyone does in practice and so we have the utmost confidence when they take those shots it is the right shot for the team," Baynes said. "When we get the ball moving and we are getting open shots, guys are going to knock them down."

Baynes has four 20-point games this season, all in the last six games, after having four 20-point games in the first 431 games of his career.

Young has three straight 30-point games and five this season, and he was sixth in the league in scoring (28.0 points) and fourth in assists (8.7) entering Wednesday. He stared into the crowd beyond the Denver bench after hitting a 3-pointer in the third quarter.

"Some of it was the bench but some of it was to one of the dudes in the crowd," Young said. "I'm not about to get fined talking about it. Sometimes what the fans say is unacceptable. I can't say nothing to him. I can't do anything towards him. I can just get buckets and look at him. He stopped talking as much."

Atlanta starting guard Kevin Huerter was forced to leave the Denver game with a left shoulder injury. The Hawks already are playing without John Collins, serving a 25-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy. Collins averaged 17.0 points and 8.8 rebounds in his first five games.
